Typically, if one person wants chicken wings and another craves pad thai, deciding where to eat hinges on a coin toss or a quick game of Risk. Soo Raa Thai - American Chic caters to both tastes. There are patently Thai dishes, including papaya salads, red curries, and chicken satay with pickles. A charcuterie plate includes three kinds of Thai sausage, crispy pork skin, sweet chili sauce, and shallots pickled with ginger.
Western influences do appear, though, in exciting fusions including a Thai-style seafood bouillabaisse or fettuccine with chili sauces. All of this is washed down with an appropriately cosmopolitan range of beers, wines, and sake.
